Nebraska's Nightmare

litt1019.gif

There's trouble in CornDawg Country. The football program is in shambles and the natives are getting restless. Can't say as I blame them. Those 12-0 seasons beating up on the North Texas State's of the world are a thing of the past. Poor little Huskers. Now all they have to get them through the winter are Green Acre's reruns.

Got any thoughts on the lament in Lincoln feel free to blog away.

    Drew,

    Why is that when you draw a group of people they all look the same? They're alway men (never women) with the same big nose. Are they all cousins? Perhaps it's time to buy a new rubber stamp for your cartoon characters.

    What a terrible season to be a Husker Fan. At least this past week Husker fans have witnessed the second coming of Tom Osborne. He will return the program to it's once proud state. The sooner Callahan is gone the better.

    That's because Nebraska fans all look the same. I'm suprised he gave the one fan some teeth, everyone knows that's not accurate.

    Actually he did draw a couple of women in this cartoon all the people in the front row are members of the Nebraska Cheerleading team.

    Charlie, with nothing but a bogus national title in the cu books, you may as well resort to kicking nebraska while it is down, as they will be kicking in the buffs teeth again in no time. plus having no teeth seems to work well for your mother.

    Charlie,

    I haven't hear too many news stories coming out of Nebraska saying that they needed to use prostitutes/escorts/strippers to lure students to play football there.
    However, I have read stories that CU DID IN FACT do this.

    So Stick it.

    Restore order to the BIG 12! LOL

    Save us Dr. Tom!

    You guys should all pitch in and get Tom, a red and white walker so he can make it to the game. What is he 80 now?

    Good luck!

    This toon is right on. If the Big Red lose this weekend all hell will break loose in Nebraska. I don't think there is anything Callahan can do to save his job at this point. Although, beating CU would be a great way to go out!! BUT, it probably won't happen. Excuse me while I go off and cry..................

    Whoa, did I touch your hot button WCH, aka Greenday ripoff song?

    Look, I'm not a CU fan but I do root for them on fifth down, anytime they play Notre Dame, and when their throwing hail mary's against Michigan.

    The bottom line is Coloradoans are raised to dislike Huskers, especially when they're coached by an exRaider, It's in the rocky mountain water.

    I think WorkingClassHero is Tom. Gotta be. Sounds the same to me.

    As for Nebraska, I am so glad. Husker fans were so arrogant and obnoxious in the 90s. I don't mind seeing both CU and the Huskers get a dose of humility.

    I'm an Aggie fan though so I have precious little to cheer about myself these days...

    Well yes CU fans enjoy ripping on Nebraska every chance you have for now. Jealous fans can only cling to one national title that happended 17 years ago while the Huskers have five titles, the last being 10 years ago. Really, Husker fans are arrogant and obnoxious? Have Husker fans ever prevented CU fans from leaving the stadium after a win? I was in Boulder on more than one occasion when it happened. Have Husker fans interupted a game because of trash being thrown on the field? No, but I know it's happened in Boulder. Nebraska recruits players without the assistance of alcohol and strippers. Can CU say that? No. Does Nebraska have NCAA violations? Again no but CU has been ticketed by the infractions committee.

    Kick the Huskers while they're down CU fans, but Husker Nation will rise again.

    Kurt, Tom is 70, does not require and walker and in fact last weekend during our 10 year celebration of our last national title team, he actually ran out onto the field during the tunnel walk.

    Charlie, Coloradoans are not raised to dislike Nebraska. It all started when Bill McCartney took over at CU. He gave CU a rival and red lettered the schedule just for Nebraska. Before that every year we beat you like a drum as CU wore those girl like blue helmets.

    I didn't say we dislike Nebraska, just the Huskers. I don't mind Chadron, and Creighton has a nice basketball team.

    The state of Nebraska is a good supporter of Denver's Stock Show, which we apreciate and we try to return the favor by allowing our cheerleading squads to travel to Lincoln. Because everyone knows that the best looking girls in Lincoln are on the visiting team's sideline.

    Husker in PA-

    I am admittingly a Buff fan when it comes to college football. I felt I had to post because of your previous post. While many of your statements are true (Nebraska having more titles AND a more recent title; I would agree that the Huskers have a more storied/successful history) there is 1 statement that is skewed.

    If you think that NO OTHER college (including NE) wasn't taking their recruits out to parties to get liquored up and show them a "good time", then you are blind to reality. The fact of the matter is that CU was unfortunately the scapegoat for something that was going on everywhere. Any collegiate athlete knows that it was going on at their school. I came from a small Division II school and it even went on there. Coaches had the recruits for part of the day and the team took them out that night. It WAS and probably still is to a lesser degree, a part of collegiate recruiting. I guarantee you that NE of all places has liquored up their recruits in years past.......lets get real, it's a part of going to college.

    I know your back is against the wall on this board arguing with CU fans.......and I largely agree with most of your statements. The recruiting statement is a joke though.....it was and still is going on everywhere.

    Bronc in C-Springs ---

    I'm not worried about what CU fans in here or anyplace have to say about Nebraka or our traditions. They have opinions and are entitled to them.

    I do have to correct you though on this whole alcohol and good times with recruits. I'm not blind to the reality that it does happen at other places and I do agree with you that it does happen other places as well...Colorado just got caught.

    I was recruited as a divison I pitcher by Kearney State in Kearney, NE. UNC over in Greeley, and the University of Nebraska back in 1988. None of those three recruiting trips resulted in other players offering liquor, beer or girls to get me to come to their University. I ended up staying close to home at UNC so my family could see me play more often and at the same time get an excellent education.

    Yes it happens but be careful when you say it HAS HAPPENED at NU....you were not there....I was.

    ESPECIALLY in BugEater Country.

    They saved all three good looking NU girls for the football recruits. Sorry bud... you picked the wrong sport. ;)

    I have never understood the logic behind the statement “Nebraska beats up on the N. Teaxas’ of the world? therefore they are weak. What about the end of the season when they would play OU, Miami, FL, FL St, etc, and win or at a minimum keep it close? The reasoning does not make sense.

    The one that NE doesn't have that CO does.. A million California refugees. I have a small front range acreage with my 2 horses. Some developer built some 600k to 800k homes next to my 3 bed ranch home. My taxes tripled and the developer wants me to fix up my house and sell the horses because they smell. They tried to sue and lost. Now they want to buy me out just to put my land into his subdivision and rid themselves of my place. Well good luck.

    The point is that our state has lost it's friendly appeal. It's become a state of busy, uptight, over financed people that hate to lose especially in local sports. When the Broncos are up, you see tons of bronco supporters. When down you see the CA team supporters. See how that works?
